Choking at the price, but worth the money spent
Reviewed in the United States on December 30, 2019
I broke down and purchased the actual HP toner after trying a knock-off (which wasn't cheap, either). I wish I had just done this from the get-go, but I was too shocked at the high cost. The upside of this is that when I bought my laser printer at Costco, it came with starter toner, and I was very surprised at how long the starter pack lasted me. When my printer told me that the starter pack levels were low, I ordered the new (imitation) toner, but the starter ink just kept going and going, in spite of the "low ink levels" message. When I finally put in the imitation toner, it immediately printed horribly and to no avail, it just wouldn't work. I finally sucked it up and got the HP and it was great from the first page. There really is no substitute. I know the price is ridiculously high, but the quality is great, and I am hoping it will last a long time if it's anything like the starter toner that came with my machine.
